Every season has its high points and low points, but 2019 became a remarkable year for classical music in San Diego.
When I was younger, I generally saw musicals and plays in San Diego at The Old Globe, La Jolla Playhouse, San Diego Repertory Theatre and San Diego Civic Theatre. My, how times have changed!
January 1, 2020, marks the start of a new decade. Looking back, I notice that I have been reviewing theatre in San Diego for more than ten years. It seems appropriate to consult what I’ve written and see, what has changed about San Diego theatre. So, instead of summarizing 2019, I’m returning to 2010 and working my way forward to the present.
Especially in the strictest sense, theater is nothing if not political. That’s important to remember given the state of world current events — and in 2019, San Diego theater proprietors served notice that they haven’t forgotten.
